When I’m not working on building custom computers or fixing phones, I love to write about technology. I’m always looking out for the best deal on any tech I can get my hands on, so one day I decided, “Why not write about it?!” You can follow me on Twitter or Instagram @pcamp96, though I’m way more active on Twitter. If you’ve got a tip to an awesome deal, go ahead and drop me a line at patrick@9to5mac.com!

If there’s one iconic mouse that’s always been around it’s the Microsoft IntelliMouse. I’ve had numerous versions of this mouse, and they’re actually still in use today. I loved the IntelliMouse because it never failed and had amazing tracking for what it was. The original IntelliMouse was wired, much like the relaunched unit from Microsoft. It features laser tracking, a DPI range of up to 3200, and those iconic back and forward buttons.
